The food tasted like a nice home cooked meal. Their dressing is made there and so are a few other items. The grilled chicken I ordered was tasty and not processed tasting like some places. No frills.

Ate dinner at this cafe. Burgers were ok. It was busy so it must be a popular place for locals as well as tourists. Highly recommend the onion rings.

The food was wholesome and filling and not at an unreasonable price. The menu was a bit limited but generally acceptable. Some of the staff however need to get a personality facelift.

Diner with a western feel. Good selection of burgers. I tried the elk, not bad. Fried corn on the cob interesting. Friendly service.

Was there on a Tuesday night (March 2017) and the rib special is excellent! Was there the following Saturday morning and had the Mt Whitney Omelet, again excellent!
